    My name is Don and I have been quilting for only a few months. Picture below is my first quilt I just finished about 2 months ago. I am getting ready to start another quilt for my parent's 50th anniversary. I have to say, this site is awesome.

    Hello Don and welcome from northern California! Love your quilt! We lived in Ocean Beach many years ago and really liked the area and the great weather.

    Located in Mira Mesa. I had a friend do the machine quilting for me. It took me about 3 weeks just to find the colors that matched. I think I have my mother hooked on quilting as well. Very addicting.

    Someone just told me it's gray and ugly in Eggo today. What's this sunny place you speak of? :0)

    Nice work on a first quilt! Welcome to the forum.

    Hello and welcome from Anaheim, CA. We will be moving to San Diego in a couple of years. What is your favorite quilt shop or place for fabric there? That is a beautiful quilt you made.

    Welcome, Don, from northeast Georgia! I'm excited about how many men we have on this board and in the quilting world. My husband has done some cutting, sewing and even longarm quilting, but he's not really gotten into it yet. "The bug hasn't bit him yet!" :)
